Welcome to the
Rotary Club of Mundaring
Established in 1971, the Rotary Club of Mundaring has a proud record of support for the local community.
The club also supports Rotary initiatives and projects that are State and Australia wide, as well as international projects such as polio eradication and Shelterbox - a very successful initiative that provides the essentials for survival in disaster areas around the world.
Good fellowship is a feature of our club, which has many long-standing members who participate because of the satisfaction derived from being of service to the community and helping others in need. The club features a mix of people of both genders from varied backgrounds and professions, which enhances networking and contact with the local and wider community.
The Rotary Club of Mundaring meets weekly on Wednesday evenings at the Mundaring Sporting Club.
An informal dinner is provided at a minimal cost, usually with a topical speaker, and partners are encouraged to attend. We are very happy to welcome those who want to know more about Rotary to our meetings as our guest. Please contact us for further information.
The History of Rotary Club of Mundaring's
Bricks For Kids
In 2018 the Board of directors of the Rotary club of Mundaring agreed to host the first LEGO workshop. The idea was to give local children an afternoon of fun and to learn the skills of design, maths, concentration, literacy and engineering. All of which are gained whilst working with LEGO.
It was decided the afternoon of fun would free to all, and $900 was set aside to run the show. On the second Saturday in March of year 2018 in the Mundaring Hall the scene was set for the next five years of LEGO.
Although the cost of running the event has increased, the club still supports the event as a free event. In fact over the last three years the workshop has been held twice a year, with an average of 32 attendees each time.
The workshops cater for boys and girls from primary school age up to the age of 15 years. Not only do they have four hours of entertainment, five lucky lottery winners also take home invitations to attend other LEGO workshop for free and LEGO kits valued at between $250 and $300.
We have progressed from the Mundaring Shire hall 5 years ago, to now in the Mundaring Hub where kids can come twice a year to have a free afternoon of LEGO bliss and to learn with like-minded youngsters.
The Rotary Club of Mundaring has recently agreed to make this event a permanent project and believes this free LEGO workshop to be one of a kind in Western Australia and possibly the whole of Australia.
